republican vice president nominee paul ryan. he talks about the future of the republican party. representative ryan spoke saturday at a conference hosted by the national review institute. this is about 25 minutes. >> all right, ladies and gentlemen, we are about to hear from our next speaker who is congressman paul ryan. [applause] when congressman ryan was picked as mitt romney's running mate last year, he became a subject of fascination. everything about him, extending even to his workout routine which is the p90x workout routine. and for those of you who aren't fit enough to have a workout routine, it sounds like it's some advanced piece of military weaponry -- [laughter] or if you happen not to work out an hour every day before breakfast, the p90x, from what i understand, involves this whole theory is you confuse your muscles, as they call it, by constantly trying a new and different workout every day. and we have evidence that paul ryan is very loyal to this workout regime because, actually, his most innovative workout has been caught on tape and broadcast very broadly. i'

or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you're looking for the right answer. >> where joe, i want to bring up something that my friend john podhoretz mentioned, and i say that carefully because reihan salam, my name has up been butchered by others, so i want to thank you for the privilege of butchering someone else's name. it's a rare treat for me. [laughter] i wanted to ask you, part of what i heard in john podhoretz's remarks is that some of the difficulties we encountered, shall we say, during the invasion of iraq and the occupation were things that really damaged the republican brand in a deep way, yet -- and so you've had a lot to say about foreign policy. you've also had a thing or two to say about the republican position on taxes and a number of other issues. so i wonder, is your view that republicans need to get right on foreign policy and can that that is really

, this is a tough thing. the house did that, paul ryan did a budget that would a tough budget that would make some tough choices. and so they were attacked in the election. how, threes horrible people, want to throw all people off the cliff and that kind of thing. and it was irresponsible. while during this entire process, the united states senate was in direct violation of federal law that required us to bring up a budget and they didn't bring it up because it would be foolish, footish politically, because you have to take tough -- foolish politically, because you have to stand up and take tough votes, members have to be analyzed. how much are you really going to raise the death taxes? oh, is that going to change the debt course, this latest $600 billion tax increase, is that going to change the debt course on america? no, really, it's not. our deficit last year was about $1,080,000,000,000, $1.1 trillion. how much was this tax increase, $600 billion? that's $60,000 a year. so instead of $1.1 trillion in deficit, our deficit would have been $1,020,000,000,000. is that going to fix our problem? it

wyden worked with the house budget committee chairman paul ryan to develop a similar proposal in the 112th congress. so while there may be some resistance to this particular idea, it has enjoyed bipartisan support. and finally, number five, we need to strengthen medicaid for patients and states through realistic reforms. setting per-capita limits on federal medicaid spending would put the medicaid program on a sustainable budget, and when combined with increased flexibility for patient-centered reforms at the state level, would reduce costs and improve patient care across the board. and as with other ideas i have mentioned, this is a bipartisan proposal. in 1995, president clinton introduced a medicaid reform plan that included a per-capita cap on federal medicaid spending. at that time, all 46 democratic senators, including several that are still serving today, signed a letter to president clinton expressing support for this proposal. in addition, in october of last year, former democratic senate majority leader tom daschle publicly expressed support for per-capita caps on medicaid spen

pulled them out of damascus. we had coming you know, very brave ambassadors, like ryan crocker, one of our very best who it would be very difficult to say you can't do this even though you decided you should do it. but what we are trying to do is create a more ongoing discussion between our ambassadors, our bureau back in the state department at our regional experts and our security people so that at the very least, no one ambassador is taking an unnecessary risk however that is the kind. >> with regards to the ambassador stevens, certainly it was brave of him to go to benghazi on the days he did. i have to ask you honestly though, was their anything on the itinerary on the 11th that actually specifically required his personal presence? >> he certainly thought so, congressman, and he did of course discuss this with his own security people but we do have regional security officers in these posts. they are the ones and ambassador will return to. he believes it was important for him to go to benghazi. there were a number of meetings that he was holding in some public events that he had
